It could be said the evening was going swimmingly for the 57-year-old man.
Not only was he intoxicated, but he was actively engaged in sexual intercourse with a 45-year-old woman, also intoxicated.
The man told police when Hughes spied him and the other woman together, she grew “enraged and started shattering everything of his in the house,” according to a recently released Port St. Lucie police report.But the situation that June 27 night in Port St. Lucie soured suddenly when the man’s girlfriend, Linda Hughes, 54, came home and saw them mid-romp.
As a rule of thumb, women do not approve of their boyfriends having sex with other women.
Still, the 57-year-old man said he didn’t want to pursue charges against Hughes for trashing his sports memorabilia, valued at $2,000, and furniture.
The 45-year-old woman said she and the 57-year-old man were in a fornication situation when Hughes “walked in and caught them.” She said Hughes got upset and started destroying “everything in the residence.”
She started quarreling with Hughes about breaking stuff when Hughes kicked her in the abdomen.
Meanwhile, Hughes said she came home after drinking and found her boyfriend and the 45-year-old woman copulating.
The 45-year-old woman wouldn’t let police photograph the area where Hughes is alleged to have kicked her. She said it was “too embarrassing.”
“It should be noted that all parties were intoxicated and refused to write statements,” the report states.
Police arrested Hughes, of the 1200 block of Southwest Mot Court in Port St. Lucie, on a battery charge.
On the way to jail, an officer reported Hughes was moving around and fiddling with her hands behind her back. The officer found a pot pipe under the seat where Hughes had been sitting.
“I’m sorry, it was my friends and I forgot I had it on me so I didn’t want to get caught with it on me,” Hughes is quoted as saying.
Hughes was arrested on additional charges including possession of less than 20 grams of marijuana, possession of drug paraphernalia and smuggling contraband – introduce into a detention facility.
